Loretta Lynch was dispatched last Sunday to tell us that we couldn’t presume to determine Omar Mateen’s motive for shooting up a gay club. And to advise all of us good little girls, boys, zes, etc. that we would be allowed to read the cleaned up version of Omar’s onsite brag. She reversed herself when even the Left was outraged by such blatant censuring of the 911 tape.
Then Loretta went to Orlando to find out why Omar did what he did:
Someday the U.S. attorney general hopes to establish a motive, but this is not the day:
After meeting with prosecutors, first responders and victims of the Orlando terror attack, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said that the investigation is still ongoing, and a motive has yet to be established.
The Obama administration is still trying to determine Omar Mateen’s motive was the NRA, the GOP Senate, climate change or some combination of all the above. – Doug Powers @ Michelle Malkin
Because clearly we can’t handle the truth:
Jessep: You can't handle the truth! Son, we live in a world that has walls. And those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinberg? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives...You don't want the truth. Because deep down, in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall. You need me on that wall.
We use words like honor, code, loyalty...we use these words as the backbone to a life spent defending something. You use 'em as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom I provide, then questions the manner in which I provide it! I'd rather you just said thank you and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you're entitled to!
I know that we’re supposed to be repelled by Col. Jessep’s words, as well as his worldview. Unfortunately we live in interesting times and more and more of us find ourselves wanting both “The Wall” and Col. Jessup on it.
Because frankly the world isn’t getting any less scary.
